Booked one night here and as soon as we arrived we booked a 2nd night. We had a double ensuite which is in the garden.

The room itself was spacious with a comfortable bed. The heater was useful as it can get chilly here at night. The ensuite was clean with a decent shower.

The communal areas were cosy, warm and super clean. The kitchen was well equipped and again super clean.

It was quiet during our stay, I would imagine it has a nice buzz about the place with more people. Janet & Diego - the resident cats are lovely and friendly.

Arne the guy who owns the place (for 5 months) is great, lots of local info and is slowly turning this great place into an even better place.

Highly recommended

Room Tip: the garden ensuite rooms are worth the extra $12

Me and my boyfriend stayed there for just one night while visiting friends in town but the hostel was so cozy and home-like that we didn't want to leave.
The owner was really nice and everything was spotless. I would completely recommend it for couples or people just looking for a quiet nice place to stay in Hanmer.

Le Gite was a perfect place to base myself for a couple of days. The hosts were friendly and obliging. The hostel had a few nice touches that you don't often get at a backpackers. Free tea and coffee, a newspaper each day and discount hot pool passes etc. The place was spotless and, in contrast to the last review, I found it very quiet. The beds were comfy and there was a log-burner to keep the place cosy, heaters in the rooms and good kitchen facilities. No TV was a bonus. Its less than 10 mins walk to the town centre and the location is just fine. A lovely place to stay winter or summer (or any time in between).

A lovely cosy hostel which is clean, friendly and well kept. It's a bit out of the way from the main town, so it's a bit difficult to pop out for a drink and get groceries but this isn't a big deal. I had a friendly welcome and would definitely return if looking for a quiet retreat in Hanmer.
